When you first register on TikTok, you are going to be asked to create a unique account name that will become your identity on the social network. The more unique and shorter your account name is, then the easier it will be for other TikTok users to recognize your account and video uploads.
However, at a certain time, sometimes you are going to get bored with the TikTok account name that was created the first time, or you do not want to use it anymore so you want to change it to make it more unique.
Aside from that, sometimes you want to change your TikTok account name for the branding process to become more professional because the name of the TikTok account that was once only seemed playful. Fortunately, you can easily change your TikTok account name without any hassle.
How to Change a TikTok Account Name?
Here are some steps to change your TikTok account name:
- Firstly, open the TikTok app on your phone.
- Then, login with your account.
- Choose the Profile menu with the person icon on the right side of the screen.
- Tap the Edit Profile button.
- Select Name and Username to change your TikTok account name.
- Please tap the Save button to save your changes.
- Your TikTok account name will change.
Need to note, Username is an account name that becomes a unique identity on various social networks including TikTok. While Name is usually intended for the real name of the user. It is good that the username or account name you use on TikTok is unique so that it is not too similar to other accounts. Occasionally, account names which are almost similar will become an issue in the future because other users will be easily confused.
TikTok has become very popular thanks to lots of effects features offered on the app that allow you to produce interesting 15-second or 60-second short videos. Also, TikTok offers a simple timeline where you only need to scroll the page to see short videos from other users.
Now, you can also get money in some ways on TikTok such as creating videos in collaboration with product brands, TikTok Affiliate, TikTok Shop, inviting friends with referral codes, and many more.
